The Mummy Diaries: The Nursery Is Finished!

It is finally finished, clothes are all washed, pictures are hung, Moses basket is here and the room is tidy! 

It’s not a very big room but it will do, baby will mostly be in my bedroom for the first few months anyway so it’s not like he will need a ton of space. We did it fairly neutral although I have sort of gone with a bit of an animal theme, I like animals and baby’s like animals so why not, also that way I get to add colours to the room subtly without making the room look smaller by using bright colours on the walls!

Here are some pics!

His cot is mine from when I was a baby and has just been repainted and had a new mattress bought for it, the pictures on the wall my mom made for us and the colourful door knobs I painted myself, so a lot of effort and love has gone into it and I think it looks pretty damn good!!

Anyone else decorated their nursery with mostly handmade/hand me down items?


April The Giraffe…

April The Giraffe!Β 

The Internet star broadcast through YouTube and CBS Denver on Facebook, possibly the most anticipated birth on the internet right now… (Maybe), April the Giraffe from NY along with her baby daddy Oliver!

Such a cute couple wouldn’t you say?

Roughly 5k people all over the world tune in every day in the hopes of catching a glimpse of this spectacular mommy give birth, it’s insane! She has no idea how famous she is and if she did do you think she would want the entire world watching her give birth?! I know I wouldn’t!! but she takes it like a trooper and just goes about her day, I wonder how she would feel if she knew we were all watching her?

She even has her own page on the Animal Adventure Park NY website… April The Giraffe

I have been checking in more or less every day since probably the last week of Feb, I’ve never seen a Giraffe give birth before, but I’m not obsessed like some people are, some stay up til’ all hours of the day watching, not wanting to miss the grand event, there is so much anticipation surrounding her birth, people speculate when it will happen, question if its even real and some just watch silently enjoying the up close and personal perspective we are getting into the life of a Giraffe!


It’s great and gives me something to kill time with, come join us crazies who are all eagerly awaiting this baby!!

Now the next big question is, boy or girl?!
